Abstract
The Stanford free electron laser center was established to support a broad range of biomedical and materials science research. This paper will begin with an introduction to the Center's capabilities, and then will present brief descriptions of some of the experiments utilizing the transform and diffraction limited tunable picosecond pulses of infrared light from the free electron lasers at the Center. The experiments share the common characteristic that they exploit unique aspects of the FEL beams and would be much more difficult to perform with any other light source.
